Summer activities come to 18-80 Club

CENTERVILLE — June is already here and summer will soon start. Many things have already started at the club.

Wednesday, June 1 the Farmer’s Market Coupons were available for distribution. This is available thru the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship program. You must be 60 years of age and meet the income guidelines and complete the application to qualify. At this time the Centerville venders are not accepting the vouchers, however they can be used at any qualifying vender in Iowa.

Today is also the start for the sign-up for Wisconsin Dells. I am still working on signing contracts for this trip so please call in to see if they have been signed before you come in.

Wednesday, June 8 we will have our Caregivers Program at 11:15 a.m. just prior to the noon chicken dinner.  

Thursday, June 9 will be the evening co-op and birthday party with bingo at 5 p.m. Bring in your favorite covered dish and table service and we will enjoy the excellent cooking. We really have a lot of wonderful cooks in our bunch, with such a nice variety of food monthly.

Monday, June 13 is the first day you can start signing up for the Terribles trip this month. The trip in May was cancelled due to not enough signed up so all those that were signed up in May will fill the first 35 of the 54 seats, so if you are planning on going and were not signed up in May you will want to be sure to come early. Remember we must have 50 people monthly to take this trip. We are now using the motor-coaches and the cost for them is much more than the smaller ones we used to use. The trip monthly consists of the transportation, a buffet meal, $10 to game with and the cost is $18 per person.

Wednesday, June 15 will be our noon birthday party with a Branson tape of the Baldknobbers being shown at 10:30 a.m. Our seniors with birthdays in June will be honored at the meal.

Thursday, June 16 the club members leave for Kansas City for a three-day trip. We do actually have a few spaces left if you are interested. Please come in and see Carla as soon as possible.  

Sunday, June 19 is Father’s Day and we will give all our fathers a wonderful day.  Monday, June 20 we will honor all the men in our group with a special Father’s Day dinner. The menu for the day will be; pork loin, sweet potatoes, cheesy steamed cabbage, fresh hot wheat rolls and apple pie alamode.  

Tuesday, June 21 is the first day of summer party with bingo starting at 10:30 a.m. Even though this is officially the first day of summer, the hot weather can stay away for a long time as far as the seniors are concerned.  

Wednesday, June 22 will be the Chef Charles Program. Gail and I have worked together very hard to make this a very special day. We will be going Mexican for the day. You chicken lovers will have chicken, just in a different form. The menu for the day will be; chicken enchiladas, red beans, rice, sopapilla’s and fried ice cream. During the Chef Charles Program we will discuss the nutrition values and then during the exercise part of her program we will be doing the Mexican Hat Dance. We invite you to come dressed in your Mexican best if you choose to.  

Friday, June 24 we will have our Deal or No Deal game starting at 10:45 a.m. In order to be part of this game you must be here at the starting time. Please call and make reservations.

Tuesday, June 28 will be our monthly Wii Bowling Tournament. To be part of this month’s tournament you must sign up for the time bracket you want. The first bracket starts at 10 a.m. and every half hour another one starts. We break for lunch and finish with the winners of each bracket.

Thursday, June 30 is the day we do go to Terribles. The bus will leave at 9 a.m. and return home at 5 p.m. We ask that you park at the east end of the parking lot or in the street.

The Iowegian wants readers to think about the solicitation ordinance that will prevent groups or individuals from entering a roadway to solicit money. The Centerville City Council in June by a 5-0 vote passed the first reading of just such an ordinance. Public pressure and during a subsequent special meeting, the council voted 3-2 to table the ordinance. A second special meeting to discuss the solicitation ordinance is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 7 at City Hall. So, the question of the week is, "Do you or do you not support the ordinance to prevent solicitation of funds in city streets?"

A. I support the ordinance
B. I do not support the ordinance
C. Not sure
